There has been a lot of chatter on the last blog entry, particularly in regards to ticket and parking prices.
First off, I appreciate all the posts and don't discourage them. But I was shocked that people were complaining about $2 parking costs. $2!?!? Get some nickels and dimes together and park the automobile! I think that's a fair price. As for NMSU ticket prices compared to others, as recommended by another poster I think an analysis is a good idea. Still, on the surface to me, NMSU seems to stack up well with other schools in and around the area.
Lets face it folks, this really comes down to wins and losses. Doctor T said on the last post that Las Cruces consists of mostly fair weather fans. I don't necessarily disagree. There could be some truth to that, there also might not be some truth to it. The reality, though, is that a lot of places are like that. No one is going to come out the last week of the season against Fresno State in the pouring rain to watch another disappointing year go down the drain. Not here and not in too many other places either.
If the Aggies are playing for something in November, people will show up, guaranteed. Is that fair weather? Could be. Call it whatever you like. But that's the formula. And that's what needs to be done. Take it or leave it.
